Set Point Ranges that can change with the changing circumstances the point of homeostasis that the body uses feedback loops to maintain
Homeostatic Control Levels Within Cells (Intracellular), Tissue or Organ (Intrinsic Control), Organ to organ (Extrinsic Control)
Subatomic particles in atoms Protons (p*) Neutrons (n^0), Electrons(e^-)
Metabolism All chemical reactions in body cells: Catabolism- Chemical reactions that break down molecules and release energy Anabolism- Chemical reactions that join molecules forming more complex molecules
Organic Molecules Molecules that contain C-C or C-H bonds
Carbohydrates Organic compounds containing: carbon, hydrogen, oxygen (sugars and starches)
Lipids Water-insoluble organic molecules: Major roles- Energy source, structural role, Integral parts of cell membrane
Proteins Most abundant organic compounds Chainlike polymers of amino acids held together by peptide bonds forming polypeptides
Lysosomes Organelle of the cell that acts like digestive system. Enzymes digest the protein of unneeded or defective cell parts
Cells Connections (how do cells hold to each other) Desmosomes- fibers on outer surface interlock with each other in spot (spot welds) or belt points (encircle whole cell) Gap Junction- Membrane channels adhere to each other Tight Junction- Joined by "collars" that molecules cannot permeate
